# Tetrahedron for the Ten Commandments

Tetrahedron for the Ten Commandments. It is necessary to get answers to three questions to understand this post.

1. First, what is the tetrahedron?
2. Second, what are the 10 Commandments?
3. Third, how can they possibly come together?

In geometry, it is also known as a triangular pyramid. The polyhedron is composed of four regular triangular triangles, six straight edges, and four vertex corners.  Our figure can be folded from a single sheet of paper. Fold the yellow, orange and red top figure along the  edges. You have the geometrical shape of the featured picture.
This figure is the first and prime figure of the 5 Platonic solids.  The other four solids have a special relationship to each other. Their relationship is called duality. Only the tetra. is dual to itself. It is unique, it is one like God.

### Division into Four and Six Like the Ten Commandments

For this comparison I quote the 1st book I wrote on Oquaga Lake called The Book of Balance.  Dictation was by an Indian spirit from the Lennie Lenape tribe. I met her on hikes in the mornings. Later I professionally played the piano for the shows for the Scott family at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House.

The commandments are  paired  by opposites of thought and deed. Upper four apply to man’s relationship to his creator. The bottom six apply to the dealings of men among each other. The basic division is between 4 and 6. A tetrahedron is also defined by numbers 4 and 6. It has 4 faces- 6 faces – four corners. The Hebrew name for “David” uses the same numbers:   “דוד”.  Hebrew letters doubled as numbers. There were no separate systems. The dalet, 1st and last letters, equals 4. The vav (middle letter) = 6.  Thus, the  Tetrahedron, 10 Commandments and David (The King of Israel and founder of Israel’s dynastic line), all equal 10 by use of the numbers 4 +6.
